Re: TNT thread

Anyone know how to tell the year from the serial? It’s 5887 on a Stovepipe coolhttps://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/32644/0e6be32c-c4cb-4ea3-a7d8-c7f93f4c7fe360f6aedea6.jpeg

Re: TNT thread

Hey guys, I picked up a set of new wheels that have Derringer hubs on them and the axles do not have the flat key ways. so the front will not fit in my fork dropout. I'm trying to decide if I want to grind/file flats in the existing axle or possibly replace them with something like the one in the porkchop link below? Thoughts? How would I go about removing the old axle and installing the new one? Also the stock axle says it's 150mm long and the porkchop is 132, which I think will be ok?

The axle is fairly long, and will certainly stick out past the nuts once it's on there. The collars are not installed in the pic as they are very tight when installed and I was having trouble getting the wheel on. So to test fit it first, I removed them and found that I need flat sides on the axle to get it on even with the collars. Thus, I'm trying to figure out first off, how to remove the axle, and second if TNT sells one or if the porkchop unit will work?

Well they are a brand new set built and sold by ACEBMX so I have no reason to believe they aren't factory... it could just be the way the picture looks? They are long but I'd bet they are stock. https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/234413/d6l6mzd---imgur610ed32c80.jpg

Re: TNT thread

Not beat up at all, just some dust/dirt on them and the way the camera makes it look, they look and feel perfect other than needing flat sides.

gotcha, just camera stuff.  i would just grind them down to fit. run a die thread back over it and should be good to go.  weird that the collars wont fit, my pic is from an 85 elf fork,stretched maybe a couple mm and slipped right on
